Kenan’s strategic partnership with multilateral and bilateral organizations goes back to our very founding, when the USAID bilateral mission to Thailand and the Thailand International Cooperation Agency (TICA) helped to establish Kenan Foundation Asia as an organization capable of continuing and furthering development cooperation between the two countries. Since then, we have worked with various governmental and intergovernmental organizations, such as USAID, the US Department of State, the Global Fund, the United Nations, ASEAN, APEC, and the European Commission to build the economic, educational, civil, and public health capacities of Southeast Asia.


Kenan provides world-class consulting, project management, training, and research services to our multilateral and bilateral partners. As a locally-based organization, we bring a unique and powerful combination of international expertise and culturally-specific knowledge to our programs and partnerships throughout Southeast Asia.


We enhance the impact of our programming through an innovative and cross-cutting approach that emphasizes governance and institution building, gender equality and women’s empowerment, youth development, and private sector engagement. These strategies underpin and drive everything we do, from developing engaging STEM curriculums and financial literacy programs, to building the capacity of CSOs and promoting good governance.


Our experienced team utilizes a broad range of development tools to deliver well-planned and impactful programs, including stakeholder analysis, action research, systems change, training, partner capacity building, conference and seminar organization, business cluster and value chain development, and behavior change communication.
